Mammoth High School may become Mammoth's second California Distinguished School, after the state board of education notified the school Oct. 29 and invited the high school to apply for the California Distinguished School title.

The heavy rains that fell the week of Oct. 18 caused problems out on the Scenic Loop Road, which is currently closed from Inyo Craters to U.S. 395. According to Inyo National Forest engineer Olin Beall, the rains soaked and saturated the base that had been laid down prior to paving. A new, dry base has now been put down in advance of two layers of asphalt. The first asphalt layer was due to be completed on Friday, Oct. 29. The second layer is scheduled for the first week of November, weather permitting.
